Open Access Week at Rice Library

Welcome to Open Access Week @ USI

Open Access (OA) scholarship is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. OA publishing shifts the costs of content creation and distribution away from subscribers, so that OA scholarship is freely available to anyone worldwide with an internet connection - no subscription necessary. Open Access Week is a global event celebrating the benefits of free, immediate access to scholarship produced by the research community.
